Our Impact

Since 1964, Girls Inc. of the Island City has empowered more than 20,000 girls in the city of Alameda to realize their potential as fearless, goal-oriented women. Through our national, research-based curriculum, girls discover the skills to live:

STRONG and healthy -- Girls Inc. girls are physically active, in charge of their own reproductive health, and have sound body image and relationships.

SMART and educated -- Girls Inc. girls are college-bound, motivated to succeed academically, and confident in STEAM fields.

BOLD and independent -- Girls Inc. girls are economically literate and are assertive, resilient advocates for themselves and others.

As Girls Inc. looks to the next 50 years, the community will continue to play a critical role in our girls’ lives, inspiring future Strong, Smart, & Bold makers and leaders! Join us.
